For the love of all that is unholy... "People don't use the 'Start Button?'" and "People use keyboard shortcuts.."
When?! Where?! WHO are these mysterious users?
Ctrl + and "Fn + 1-12" are two of the best kept secrets in using a computer. Rare is the day when I encounter someone that knows how to do either of these.
I would make multiple accounts JUST to score this +5 Funny/Insightful.
Shocker this, the Slashdot community hates anything to do with Social Media anyway. Why am I still surprised on the vitriol?
That said, I think this is an amusing idea. Sure, some people will buy according to like-counts, but I would HOPE that that would be a small percentage compared to those that buy by personal taste and fit. This is only the obvious next-step beyond typical advertising.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to see a man on Craigslist about buying a bridge.
... The same example that the FBI and other governmental organizations have been giving out since their inception?
Those who would give up essential usability to purchase a little temporary security, deserve neither usability nor security.
Yes... But he said liberty, not usability.
I can't argue with this. More and more, people are now feeling the backlash of spending too much, expecting too much and doing too little to make it happen.
My condolences are out to the people that have fallen on hard times. That said, money is rather easy to come by, and people are always willing to shovel tasks off on someone willing to do them for a price, no matter how menial. In fact, doing something is better than lying around bemoaning about having "nothing to do." And, assuming it's not against someone's ethical code or harms anyone else, I don't see the problem in doing it.
They call that "work ethic."
That sort of translation technology doesn't exist, as of yet.
Scum. At least HIDE the spam.
Uhh... Misleading Title, as it implies that HER parents did the teasing.
Beyond that, good to hear that SOMEHOW this one slipped through the cracks and has a conscience.
So, does that mean when I look at my Facebook Friends List, I'll start getting popups for Proazc, Paxil and Xanax?
That's okay. Most CEO's should generally be dismissed as people with no leadership abilities, intelligence, morals, scruples or logic.
Hence, "businessmen" as opposed to "Human."
Facebook isn't concerned, since they know that people are addicted. Even if there ARE other games in town, none of them have the reach and grip that FB has on social culture. Count up how many websites are using a FB login as THEIR services login.
Which is STILL a pathetic "industry," since anyone with mp3's and a copy of iTunes (or other music software) can make snippets of music.
